The Alarming Truth

Fire Safety Video & Outreach Campaign

The Clery Center is proud to have partnered with the Michael H. Minger FoundationCampus FirewatchRowan UniversityUniversity of Pennsylvania, and the Philadelphia Fire Department to create The Alarming Truth, a short film that addresses the importance of fire prevention and safety for college students, especially those living off campus.  

The project was funded under a Department of Homeland Security Fire Prevention and Safety Grant through the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), and consists of a brief video and additional educational materials. The Alarming Truth was written and produced by Rowan University students and offers a fresh angle relevant to college students and easy to view and share.

All of the materials are available for free to aid institutions in their efforts to implement valuable prevention programming on a limited budget.
